Not great, but not bad… Here’s why
; This was made an auto correct, So flip grid is spelled as in two words ;
OK, to be honest, flip grid is not that bad. There’s nothing really special about it so that’s why I’m writing this comment, just to tell you that there’s nothing special. There are some major and minor bug fixes but it’s not that bad, I just don’t like how the creator can like control everything, I understand they do that so a person doesn’t destruct everything, but if you need to, just delete them and undo what they did!!! Again, there are minor and major bug fixes which really annoys me. It’s not SUPER DUPER bad, but you can get extremely annoying at times. Sometimes, I just rage and exit the app. I like how you can make thumbnails and items like that when you post videos and you can name it and make a description! But, I really wish that The videos don’t have to be under a certain amount of time… it is also really hard to edit your video so please work on that flip grid! Overall, it’s an OK app, thank you so much for reading this if you’ve gotten all the way down here because I wrote so much, LOL! Have a great day.
Would call it a lifesaver...!
During spring break, while talk of a nationwide shutdown spread, I began hunting for technology that would help me maintain the hard-earned classroom community that was built throughout the current school year. Fortunately my school is part of a 1:1 district, meaning each student checks out a laptop and hotspot at the beginning of the school year and returns it at the end. This is amazing for sure; however, the hotspot only allows a small percentage of data to be used up each month. Therefore, Google Meet was not going to be a viable option for me. Any type of group video meeting would eat through the kids data right away. Not sure what could work instead, I found an article that included Flipgrid as a resource idea, and OMG was I glad to have found it! Using Flipgrid this past month has kept me and my students ‘in touch’ in SUCH better ways than a Zoom or Google Meeting could have done. I will be using Flipgrid from now on!
It is terribly simple for the kids to use (as well as myself!) and they actually love it! I teach literature at an alternative high school- so I’m always looking for different ways to bring the material to the kids and definitely different ways for the kids to demonstrate their understanding. Flipgrid is PERFECT for this! I love the community involved, the assignments already posted/shared, and the ease and simplicity of the planning involved. Thank you Flipgrid!!! 5 stars!
Maybe I like filp grid maybe not it’s really bad.
Flip grid is really good app with emojis and any kind of stuff. I don’t like flip grid at all, because it has bugs and also needs to be re-fixed. The backgrounds are laggy they show the stuff behind you. I think that may has to be un-laggy, just in case nothing shows but just the background, I don’t like the cameras either, it chooses the time for you and I would like it if it had a minute timer chooser, like 10 minutes or 5 or 4 and hours or seconds, I also hate the vidoes, the videos that my class makes my friends there laggy the vidoes are super laggy, it goes like in sounds, and the items you like get to move and size won’t WORK AT ALL , when you try to size it doesn’t work that you have to use all your pressure in. The movement for the emoji doesn’t work either. I doesn’t have anything special about it either, LOL Sorry that you have to read this but I love your creativity but has to fixed,
